Twenty-two former Florida Gators are scheduled to participate in 2015 Pro Day on Tuesday morning at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida.
Leading the pack are a pair of potential first-round draft picks in defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and offensive tackle D.J. Humphries.
Though others could join them, the 20 other players include: fullback Gideon Ajagbe, linebacker Neiron Ball, running back Mack Brown, offensive lineman Trenton Brown, tight end Clay Burton, punter Kyle Christy, defensive lineman Darious Cummings, wide receivers Andre Debose and Quinton Dunbar, long snapper Drew Ferris, OL Max Garcia, defensive back Jabari Gorman, OL Chaz Green, RB Matt Jones, FB Hunter Joyer, OL Tyler Moore, DL Leon Orr, LB Michael Taylor, kicker Frankie Velez and TE Tevin Westbrook.
Former South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia told OnlyGators.com on Monday that he will be in attendance throwing to Florida’s pass catchers. UF would not confirm his attendance nor that of any other former Gators not previously announced.
Executives, general managers, scouts and/or coaches from each the NFL’s 32 teams will be in The Swamp.
You can take it in, too, as Florida Field is open to the public during the event, which will also air live nationally on the SEC Network beginning at 10:30 a.m. Former Alabama QB Greg McElroy (who played under Florida head coach Jim McElwain) and former Gators wideout Chris Doering will both be in attendance for SEC Network.
Players that did not participate in the combine – or wish to better their times – will participate in many of the same drills including the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle and bench press. Coaches will also put the players through position-specific drills.
The Gators came under heavy criticism last year when Pro Day was effectively rained out (portions were held inside the Stephen C. O’Connell Center and out on the practice field later in the day), but the forecast calls for 74 degree weather with just a five percent chance of precipitation for Tuesday. Florida is currently building an indoor practice facility that will be ready in September.
